Vector Borne:
Vector borne diseases are not just a ‘seasonal’ threat but are perennial now. 2016 has witnessed a huge upsurge of dengue cases at Alipurduar specially Jaigaon-I, jaigaon-II which are adjacent to Bhutan. In 2017, it is observed that the cases have already peaked up in comparison to the same period of the previous year.Malaria & Dengu cases, being reported from several districts with a few deaths even in summer, is a threat too although of a milder degree. So CHCMI cell with collaboration of Mission Nirmal Bangla took a great initiative to curb epidemic like Dengu and Malaria.
